Narindar Saroop brought the Tories closer to Asians

in DLIKE11 months ago


In the 1979 general election, he was the first Asian parliamen­tary candidate to represent the Tories in modern times when he stood in Greenwich in London. Saroop performed creditably, getting 12,133 votes to Guy Bar­nett's 18,975 for Labour.

Margaret Thatcher, who be­came Britain's first female prime minister by winning that elec­tion, commended him for put­ting up "such a good fight against the odds".
